As part of my postdoc at U of T’s Faculty of Information, I’m helping organize an international workshop entitled Cyber-surveillance in Everyday Life. It’s part of a series of workshops organized by the New Transparency: Surveillance and Social Sorting. I attended the Surveillance Games, held in Vancouver last year, and Camera Surveillance in Canada, hosted by Queens University, both of which featured excellent speakers and interesting art exhibits.
Our workshop will continue the rigorous process of inquiry already established by the New Transparency, probing *burning* and emergent questions around surveillance in the digital sphere. The workshop will bring international experts, activists and students together to share, network and collaborate.
